    Amazing!!!

    I can't say enough great things about Lynne! She was amazing from the start to finish. My maid of honour and I brought our dresses there for alterations. My dress has very intricate lace and mesh on the back as well as a scalloped lace detail on the hem of the dress that I had ... View more other seamstresses tell me that was going to cost upwards of $500 to alter. Lynne assured me it would be no issue and she had both our dresses done in 2 weeks and it was absolutely PERFECT!! The dress truly felt like it was made for me and fit like a glove. She was able to take it in where others told me it wouldn't be possible, added a 3 point bustle, cups and hemmed the lace immaculately. I would recommend her and go back to her for any kind of alterations in a heartbeat. I am so thankful she had a part in my big day. Thank you Lynne xoxo

    Lynne truly is a Wedding Dress Whisperer!

    Getting my dress tailored by Lynne was a fantastic experience! Right away she makes you feel comfortable and you trust that she will do a great job. She honoured what I wanted for the dress and helped make decisions about the tailoring that she knew would look best for the day. The dress was done fast and looks wonderful! Couldn't recommend her enough!

    Look no further!!

    Lynne is absolutely amazing at what she does. She made dreams come true about my dress I didn’t even know I had. She always made sure I was happy with something before she did it. Lynne truly cared about me and making sure my dress was everything I wanted it to be. I couldn’t imagine having my dress altered by anyone else! Thank you so much again Lynne!
